Paul, it bugged me too, so one day I actually started to add it then
remembered about the -i stdin method and decided it wasn't needed for that
reason.  Ever since that day I've been piping my -S progs into swish.


   ./prog --option=foo -x -y -v | ./swish-e -S prog -i stdin

is clear where

  ./swish-e -S prog -i ./prog -o '--option=foo -x -y -v'

is a bit confusing (to read and probably to swish-e's switch parser) -- is
-v for swish or for ./prog?
